World Book Day 2016

Celebrate World Book Day 2016 with Scholastic! Capitalise on the excitement of the day by running a Book Fair, a Book Club, or even publishing your pupils’ work in their very own book!

World Book Day is a huge celebration of authors, illustrators, books and reading in schools, libraries and homes in over 100 countries.

You can celebrate books in all sorts of ways; by sharing a favourite story, dressing up as a favourite book character or heading to your local bookshop or library for a storytelling.
